Marlborough, Connecticut – Lexium MDrive NEMA size 23 are now available with premium high torque stepper motors as an alternative to standard motors. This new motor option delivers up to 50% more torque, boosting the performance of Lexium MDrive integrated products to an even higher performance level while maintaining compact size and format.

Increasing torque performance without increasing Lexium MDrive product size represents a real advantage for applications where space is a premium. These products are also great for industrial applications, especially the IP65 rated version with circular M12 connectors. We are winning business daily, replacing servos, and even some gearboxes, by delivering the required torque in a lower cost, space saving package,” according to Paul Kling, VP Sales, SEM USA.

True closed loop performance of Lexium MDrive products, while eliminating possible motor stalling, also delivers continuous torque at low speeds; eliminates tuning; reduces heat and energy usage with variable current control. Wiring is reduced by up to 40%, and installation time cut 25% by replacing multiple individual components.

Choose from industry standard communication protocols including: EtherNet/IP, ModbusTCP, Profinet, CANopen, and serial RS-422/485 with programmable motion control and pulse/direction input. Lexium MDrive products are suited for both new and existing applications.

MDrive is a family of integrated motor products, both rotary and linear. SEM USA [formerly IMS] is a division of Schneider Electric, a global corporation with operations in more than 100 countries.
